Description
Visqueen Liquid Applied Compound (LAC) is an easy to apply, high performance
cold applied liquid membrane which rapidly dries to form a flexible membrane. The
product is manufactured from bitumens and white spirit - see material safety
datasheet for health and safety advice- and is available in ready to use 5L tins.
Visqueen LAC has been BBA approved covering its use for the tanking of
basements and as a damp proof membrane for solid floors.

Application
Visqueen Liquid Applied Compound (LAC) is typically used as a damp proof
membrane to ground floors, as a vapour barrier behind cladding and for tanking of
basements in accordance to BS8102 – Grades 1,2 and 3 apply. Visqueen LAC
can also be used for waterproofing of foundations, retaining walls, abutments,
steel columns, beams, lintels and structures where cladding is to form the outer
leaf. Visqueen LAC may also be applied to the internal face of external walls
above ground level to prevent the penetration of moisture. The liquid membrane
can then be plastered or dry lined when dry. Visqueen LAC may also be used to
provide a barrier to Radon Gas.

slightly damp surfaces . Any surface contamination e.g. oil, paint, snots, fungal growth,
etc must be removed.
All substrate cracks must be repaired and filled prior to product application.
